Ten-year-old Tae Kwon Do blue belt and budding rock hound Brendan Buckley keeps a "Confidential" notebook for his top-secret scientific discoveries. And he's found something totally top secret. The grandpa he's never met, who his mom refuses to talk about or see, is an expert mineral collector and lives nearby! Secretly, Brendan visits Ed DeBose, whose skin is pink, not brown like Brendan's, his dad's, or that of Grampa Clem's, who recently died. Brendan sets out to find the reason behind Ed's absence, but what he discovers can't be explained by science, and now he wishes he'd never found him at all. . . .

    " My boyfriend's son is participating in the Reading Olympics, and after his disaster of a science project, the only way to really help him out, I figured, is to read the books. So, I began the book with trepidation, uch, a kid's book, but you know what, it was great! And really timely, in light of yesterday's inauguration. A great way to discuss race, and how to ask difficult questions with kids. The metaphors are definitely the "hit you over the head" kind, but it's a great stepping stone to the world of post-adolescent literature. "

    " Brendan has questions he needs answered and he'll do just about anything to get those answers. Brendan has a grandfather he knew nothing about until an accidental meeting over some rocks and minerals. This is a good book if you like rocks or tae kwon do (both resonate with me). This is also a good book for beginning a discussion of race relations and biracial families. Had me boo-hooing though. "
